- The federal appeals court handling Vringo's (VRNG -10.8%) suit against Google has ruled against Vringo, arguing the patent claims it asserts "disclose no new technology, but instead simply recite the use of a generic computer to implement a well-known and widely-practiced technique for organizing information." (the full ruling - .pdf)
- The appeals court cites a recent Supreme Court ruling that upheld the patentability of software concepts, but barred companies from patenting a mere abstract idea on a computer.
- Vringo has been halted. Shares plunged shortly before the halt.
